People are Getting Beheaded in Mexico

It’s horrible. But there’s nothing very surprising about it. The drug war promises endless violence and always delivers. Pablo Escobar killed three presidential candidates in the same election and blew up an entire passenger plane to kill two snitches.

This year beheadings are popular. I wonder what people would say if things like this were happening on American soil:

In the most horrendous instance, drug lord gangs busted into a nightclub, toting rifles, and rolled five heads across the dance floor, terrifying onlookers.

People were surprised, but I’m sure everyone knew what it was all about. This kind of thing has been commonplace ever since the drug war began.

Various anti-immigration bloggers are now citing these incidents as evidence that our borders must be secured, for fear that Mexicans will come to America and start cutting peoples’ heads off.

It’s a bit silly, because the worst drug traffickers have no reason to leave Mexico. They’ve got the run of the place. The people crossing the border are poor folks who come here for economic opportunities, less-overt corruption, and white picket fences that don’t have severed heads impaled on them.

If you’re concerned about immigration, note that our drug war incentivizes traffickers to dig tunnels and cut holes in the fence.

If you don’t want your tax-dollars spent educating foreigners, note that you’re footing the bill to train counter-narcotics police in Colombia that just get massacred ten at a time.

And if you’re troubled by all the beheadings near our border, note that our current policy ensures their continuation for the remainder of human history.

Stopping the drug war is our only chance to defund drug terrorists and bring a close to this global catastrophe.

mexico is american soil

on American soil:

You seem to think Mexico isn't America.....since when did we claim America for ourselves....this is common in the
U S where they think there god is good.....Wake up America includes North and South and Central....and there are no gods....just bad ideas.......

The 32 that went to there god on time in Virginia have relatives asking why....maybe they should rejoice that they have been chosen at that moment as it is with death....illusion of suffering!

We in the U S have excluded all other americans north, central and south....soon we'll be an arab country!

And the U S thinks they are exclusive in the idea of a god....what bullshit....hero worship is going to kill the illusion....thank god/devil...whichever comes first in ur illusion!

United States of AMERICA

That is why many people call us Americans and refer to our country as America. Get a clue.
